Horrifyingly naive. This "argument" could be used to deflect any of the absolutely outrageous laws that get enacted.

Using that example, I would say it's more "fair" to simply not download the files. That's an option people tend to forget about. I am not saying that I am for the strict fines and penalties, but there is a very simple option for not getting in trouble.

Not necessarily naive, but I do understand the harm involved with making such draconian laws. Some things are not as easy to control as downloading. I have never stolen a file by accident or by not paying attention. It's ridiculous from both sides.

though our internet's so bad we wouldn't be able to download any files to break the law any ways.

Well I wonder who will pay taxes when most of the developed world's working population is in jail.

I don't see how you can justify a fine like this for essentially shoplifting.

You're taking something without paying. There is going to be a punishment of some sort. That's all there is too it.

Actually I think mimicking the penalties for shop lifting would be fitting and more than enough to keep the honest people from doing it. Don't misunderstand me, the two crimes are as different as earth and sky, but I think they should carry similar penalties.

Make a decent streaming service for TV and movies, I want to be able to stream 1gb+ 720p tv episodes and 50gb full size blu-ray's. Also, TV would need to be available on the same day that it is first aired, i'm not waiting 14 days to watch it FTA @480p with bonus ads, I would much rather pay a small fee for it too have it instantly and a decent quality, if there were 1m of ads at the beginning and end of the stream, that would be acceptable.

Make a service like spotify premium for TV and Movies for a monthly fee of less than $25 and you have me as a customer. 720p decent bitrate minimum for TV and 1080p decent bitrate minimum for Movies.

Who agrees with me?

Also a "Family Plan" which allows multiple simultaneous users for music/tv/movies for $100 or less per month would be tempting if everything else about the service was decent.
